About this property

  • 30b Gainsborough Road is a superbly presented modern house set in a remarkable private position. The house has been constructed with great care and attention to detail from soft red brick under pitched slate roofs. The house has enormous character with stone & flint elevations, large French windows providing light and bright accommodation and very well proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights. The current owners have presented the house with great flair to an exceptionally high standard throughout. Internally the house has a wonderful contemporary feel yet coupled with classic features such as a log burning stove in the sitting room and French windows opening out to the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is a particular feature of the house opening on one side to a snug with bespoke fitted floor to ceiling book shelving. Exposed wood floors with zoned thermostatic under floor heating, flow throughout the open plan space to a garden/sun room with lantern roof and bi-fold doors out to the professionally landscaped gardens. The contemporary kitchen benefits from a kettle tap, integrated dishwasher, Fisher & Paykel freezer drawer, Siemens coffee machine, microwave, two full size ovens and a full height fridge. A large induction hob takes centre stage on the island unit.

    The house is approached up a long tarmac driveway to the electric gates with intercom, then onto a wide parking sweep fronting the house and double garage, with generous storage loft above and separate motorbike storage to one side. A new 10' x 8' shed with mains power and lighting on a hard standing provides ample garden storage or a potential workroom. The gardens wrap around the property and to the front of the house is a bespoke timber tree house with mains power, an elevated bridge to another platform with a zip line and a swing to one side. To the rear of the house the gardens are landscaped to provide a wonderful outdoor seating area with an array of mature plants in raised beds and pleached fruit trees on the wooden trellis fencing beyond. A sympathetic four circuit lighting scheme illuminates throughout the garden for evening use.
